John Conyers visited Minnesota to discuss universal health care at a town hall meeting held by local representative Keith Ellison. He was confronted by We Are Change Minnesota about not impeaching war criminals still in office and for not reopening the investigation of 9/11.

John Conyers confronted on impeachment and 9/11 at a health care town hall meeting held with local representative Keith Ellison

Conyers said:

“I consider every one of you who want impeachment to be very close to me and very dear to me because that’s what we need, and I don’t discourage you from moving forward on your position one bit. Keep it up, because the more you keep it up, the more people are going to realize that this war was illegal and that many of the economic and political acts that have been perpetrated by this administration are criminal, um, or represent a violation of the oath of office, or are otherwise illegal.”

“Let me debate you on that,” he replied to my appeal that, “failure to impeach will set the greatest precedent for tyranny in all of American history.” Conyers is chairman of the House Judiciary Committee (of which Ellison is also a member) which oversees impeachment, and the pro-impeachment community made their presence felt at the town hall.
